Jackfruit Honey Bread #wholegrains

This month’s #BreadBakers challenge was to use no refined sugar hosted by Mayuri. I decided to use honey. This is a simple tea bread that is perfect with your morning cup of java. The original intention was to use banana, but then a late night mishap had…

Spiced Duck & Vegetable Stir Fry #asianfood #lowcalorie #healthy #duck

This is the very first duck recipe I’ve posted. However, I like duck a lot. Duck a l’Orange is probably the most popular duck recipe internationally. Except for once when I was in culinary school, that is not the most common duck preparation in my mind.…

Fried Okra Salad #salad #friedokra #southernfood

Fried okra is a classic dish from southern American cuisine. While they are delicious, they are high in calories due to the deep fried batter that surrounds the okra. Add some balance to fried okra but combining it with a fresh salad. I came back from the…

A fabulous light gumbo - New Orleans cuisine personified #seafood   #neworleans   #cajuncuisine  
When people think of New Orleans, long before the tragedies of Hurricane Katrina, the food is what comes to mind. Even with the musical and cultural festivities of Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras, the food is what you will always remember most if you’ve ever visited New Orleans. Louisiana is basically swampland. With so many waterways …

Jicama Salad with Roasted Green Tomato-Lemongrass Dressing #salad #saladdressing #thaifood #thaiinspired

This week’s BM theme is fruits that are used as vegetables. While there are many, I think the most common is the tomato. When some of my local BM friends and I visit a local UPICK farm we like to visit, we love going during tomato season. The farm fresh…

with coconut milk, this biryani is not to be missed
 
This flavourful, spicy soy chunks biryani is baked in oven after layering rice and soy chunks gravy and topped with coconut milk. This is so good with just a simple onion raitha at the side. http://gayathriscookspot.com/2016/06/layered-soy-chunks-biryani-recipe/
For the final day of rice dishes, I needed to make a layered rice dish. There are so many ways of making a layered rice. You can either bake it in oven or cook it over stove top and you can either …

Lemon Basil Pesto Tagliatelle with Okra #pasta #summer #farmersmarkets #vegetarian

I love going to the Union Square Farmer’s Market on Saturdays. Even though it’s open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays also, Saturday is the day that all of the purveyors come. Farmers come with all sorts of unique produce that is never available at the…
With these fresh ingredients, you won't notice the lack of flavor in the frozen okra but still get all of the health benefits that okra provides. If you can get your hands on fresh okra, definitely use that for a more flavorful dish.

Marinated Asian Seared Scallops & Jicama Slaw #seafood #salads #asianfood #recipes

For this week’s contribution to Cookbook Cooking Challenge, I am using a cookbook I have had for many years, but this is my first time utilizing it for the blog. It’s  Williams-Sonoma cookbook on Asian food, with a focus on fast food. The book is divided…
Jicama is one of my favorite veggies to have on hand for the summer. Although it is a root vegetable and can be enjoyed in hearty stews and curries, it has such a clean and fresh taste it works great as an addition to salads and stir fry.

This is the best supermarket in the NYC for Latin American food products - every type of Peruvian pepper paste you can imagine. A large variety of cremas and cheeses from all over Latin America including Ecuadorian Cayembe, my fave. Dried blue corn for making Peruvian Chica Morado or Mazamorra, plantain flour, plantain leaves, lucuma, blue corn tortillas. large selection of dried and fresh chiles and a great produce section. Gallina - hard fowl and the list goes on. Any ingredient you need for Latin cooking can be found here

This restaurant is the kind of place you want to come back to again and again. With a small bar and only about 28 seats, it has a neighborhood feel to it. If I lived in the area, it's definitely a place I would stop by on my way home from work for a quick beer and pleasant conversation with locals. The food is amazing. Portion size is perfect. Ample, but not oversized like many American eating establishments. Traditional Columbian food - the shrimp ceviche is definitely a must and they have a wide selection of South and Central American beers - Tona, a Nicaraguan lager was so refreshing on a hot summer day. It's bright and crisp, with no bitterness at all. Of course, being a Columbian restaurant, they also have lots of coffee based drinks and to end your meal, the tres leches cake is perfect - not too sweet and not too wet, it's the best version I've ever had.
